Academic Content Standards
1.D.1: Describe the rock cycle and explain that there are sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks that have distinct properties (e.g., color, texture) and are formed in different ways.
1.D.3: Identify minerals by their characteristic properties.
2.A.1: Explain that many of the basic functions of organisms are carried out by or within cells and are similar in all organisms.
2.A.2: Explain that multicellular organisms have a variety of specialized cells, tissues, organs and organ systems that perform specialized functions.
2.A.3: Identify how plant cells differ from animal cells (e.g., cell wall, chloroplasts).
2.B.4: Recognize that an individual organism does not live forever; therefore reproduction is necessary for the continuation of every species and traits are passed on to the next generation through reproduction.
2.B.5: Describe that in asexual reproduction all the inherited traits come from a single parent.
2.B.6: Describe that in sexual reproduction an egg and sperm unite and some traits come from each parent, so the offspring is never identical to either of its parents.
2.B.7: Recognize that likenesses between parents and offspring (e.g., eye color, flower color) are inherited. Other likenesses, such as table manners are learned.
2.C.8: Describe how organisms may interact with one another.
3.A.4: Describe that chemical and physical changes occur all around us (e.g., in the human body, cooking, industry).
3.C.6: Explain that energy derived from renewable resources such as wind and water is assumed to be available indefinitely.
3.C.7: Describe how electric energy can be produced from a variety of sources (e.g., Sun, wind, coal).
3.C.8: Describe how renewable and nonrenewable energy resources can be managed (e.g., fossil fuels, trees, water).
